Indiana State University-Terre Haute (Exercise Science)
I began teaching group exercise classes at Indiana State University. After graduating from Indiana State with a Bachelor of Science, I worked at the YMCA where I was a Group Exercise Trainer, teaching classroom curriculum to adults and young adults who wanted to become certified in group exercise. Since then I have taught young children, ages 3-6, in a preschool setting. As a preschool instructional assistant I worked with children on letter and number recognition and sounds, putting letters together, gross motor skills through teaching games in PE, and fine motor skills through cutting, pasting, and letter formation. While working at the preschool, I was given the opportunity to teach doctors and nurses a new computer program for charting patient information electronically. Currently I am working at Caston High School as an Instructional assistant where I help students with learning challenges in Algebra and Integrated Chemistry and Physics. I also work one on one with a nonverbal student reading to him and giving AR quizzes and working with him on learning his communication device.
I have taught in many different settings including hospitals, traditional classrooms, and recreational areas. My opportunities have given me experience in teaching a vast spectrum of subject matter to ages preschool to adult. I am a creative person and want learning to be fun. I am a patient person and believe in meeting people where they are. I focus on finding the student's challenge and working to make learning the subject matter easier for that person. I enjoy teaching all age groups and believe that you don't have to be the smartest in a subject area to succeed, but with study skills, effort and organization any student can be successful.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have a Bachelor of Science in exercise science since 1999. I started teaching group exercise in college and have over 10 years of experience teaching group exercise. I have 3 years of experience in personal training.
